More Fun with Watercolor in Painter 2023


No tutorials this time; I am just sharing some recent work.

I am a bit out of practice, but I do love the sumi-e style. Watercolor in Painter 2023 using some of my custom brushes.

I call this style landscape abstracts. I want the simplest brush work possible but expressing a lot of content. I want the viewer to have participation in discovering their own landscape.

This last one I was trying to get a good emulation of traditional watercolor and a more traditional approach to painting in Painter 2023. I was pleased with the effort.

Fun With Enso in Corel Painter 2023


I don’t pretend to understand the philosophy behind Enso. Wikipedia states that in Zen, Enso is a circle that is hand drawn in one or two uninhibited brush strokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. For me it is similar to creating Sumi-e or using ink and brush to make the circle.

I cannot tell you why I like these images or why I enjoy doing them. I just do. I find the process relaxing. Normally I go too far and embellish the images as you will see in the first of the video. But I also do the simple one stroke forms but rarely save them.

I thought you might like to try them yourself. Just have fun. The practice also strengthens my drawing skills. Enjoy…

This is an example of Enso created in Corel Painter 2023. Let me know if you try Enso.

Fun with Enso
